Publisher's Summary

Realmslayer is the most exciting project I have worked on in years, and playing Gotrek fired my imagination with wonder. He possesses enormous courage and imagination, and is totally fearless – more powerful than any hero in literature and history.

What a challenge! It was like playing ten King Lears at once! He will live forever.

(Brian Blessed, the voice of Gotrek Gurnisson in Realmslayer)

Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of the age, who met his doom at the End Times. The heroic duardin stepped forth into the Realm of Chaos to fight the daemons gnawing at the world's ending and satisfy his death oath, leaving behind his companion Felix Jaeger. 

Now Gotrek has returned, having outlived the old gods and the Old World. Spat from the ruinous depths with his redemption unfulfilled, he emerges into the Mortal Realms, a strange new world where gods walk the earth and dark forces are ascendant. Nothing is as he remembers. His oaths are dust, and the lands are torn asunder by Chaos.   

Yet when Gotrek learns of human champions being elevated to immortality for Sigmar’s fight against this darkness, the so-called 'Stormcast Eternals', he knows why fate has brought him into this new age. To find Felix. For only then can he find the peace in death he seeks. But is there more to Gotrek's apotheosis than even he can fathom? Has he truly been chosen by Grimnir and for what purpose?

Solid return for Gotrek

My only complaint is how brief everything is but its a surprisingly good return to form of the original series mixed with the straight high fantasy of the second authors books. The changes to Gotrek are appropriate for a dwarf stuck in the realm of Chaos for about ten thousand years and the characters that come along perfectly fitting.

Well voice acted, accompanying sound effects perfectly over the top, chapters get broken up into parts sort of like the originals in Trollslayer and Skavenslayer and is used to good effect. Very reminiscent of where the series started without being an uninspired series of repeats.

Now we need the original series done this way, plus all of Ciaphas Cain, Black Librarys latest effort for their audio have been amazing and these older series seeing new love is amazing.

An excellent story

Great, even if you're not familiar with the previous Felix and Gotrek fiction. All I knew going in was that they were a dwarf and a human who had some adventures.

1 of the best audio dramas by black library

Fantastic production, Brian Blessed was exactly how I imagine how Gortrek would sound in real life, and the story was great! Wishing more of this series would be out soon!

Slayer Returns

This is such an easy listen- Even though it was my first journey with Gotrek I feel like he is an old friend by now, Brian Blessed is inspired casting and gives it all his power & energy. The whole cast are superb, the writing and narration first class.
Gotrek's alive, indeed.

GOTREK IS BACK

Absolutely incredible story telling, both in the plot as well as the voice acting and sound effects. truly quite an engaging experience. plus its got.me hyped for Gotrek's next venture, hopefully one where he retrieves his manling poet back from wherever he's been. Incidentally I really loved how the author portrays Gotrek's feelings about his remembrancer; it was quite touching and really incredibly nostalgic.

Gotrek is back.

A great story is made even better by a stellar cast of voice actors and a great soundtrack. Gotrek is back, and he is PISSED. You definitely want to see what happens.
